U.S. Goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris to Undergo Minor Knee Surgery

CHICAGO (Nov. 25, 2013) – U.S. Women’s National Team and Washington Spirit goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris will undergo arthroscopic surgery on her left knee on Dec. 3 to repair a torn lateral meniscus.

The injury has been impacting her play since June and the small tear will be cleaned up during a procedure that will keep her out 4-6 weeks.

Harris, who played every minute of 18 matches for the Washington Spirit this past season, has two caps with the National Team, both earned this year.

Following the NWSL season, she went to Sweden to play for Tyresö in the Damallsvenskan, helping the club to second place in the league and into the final eight of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
